Porsha Williams is getting married, y’all! After just a month of courting, she said “Yes” to Entrepreneur, Simon Guobadia!
So who exactly is this Simon Guobadia, who (for most of us) seemed to just pop up outta no where? More on that later.
Looks Like Porsha Williams Is Pretty Happy Right About Now…She’s Engaged To Simon Guobadia!
39-year-old Porsha Willimas can be seen on Dish Nation. Also she is a star on Bravo’s popular reality show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Simon Goubadia and Porsha have only been dating for a month. But, that’s all the time they needed to know they were ready to head to the alter.
There’s only one small hitch though…he’s already married!
Simon Currently Married To Socialite Falynn Guobadia?
56-year-old Simon Guobadia is the estranged husband of Falynn Guobadia, a socialite and model. Falynn also appeared on Season 13 of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta with Porsha Williams. However, Porsha says they are not friends. See her statement below.
Even though Falynn is technically still married to Simon, their union is ending in divorce. After just a year and a half of marriage, their union fell apart. Their divorce is not yet final, but I call this a small hitch because the ink on their settlement agreement has already dried.
Upon hearing the news of her husbands engagement, Falynn had this to say –
“I want to thank everyone for reaching out to me and offering their love and support,” Falynn said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE on Tuesday. “At this time, I am focusing on finalizing my divorce and healing. Sending positivity to all of you.”
So Who Is Simon Guobadia Anyway?
Other than the soon-to-be ex-husband of Falynn Guobadia, Simon Guobadia is a Movie Producer, Entrepreneur, and Businessman. But he brings a lot more to the table. According to Biography Daily, he is also –
- Running Simon’s Restaurant in Midtown which opened in 2017
- Previously, he ran Buckhead Bottle Bar, which closed in 2014
- Serves as CEO of KLC Petroleum Transport, LLC in Atlanta, Georgia, which launched in 2019
- Owns Simcol Petroleum Limited Company, LLC which began in 2007
- CEO of Simcol Group, also based in Atlanta

Announcing the news on both their social media accounts, the newly engaged couple appear to be smitten with each other.
And How Does Dennis McKinley Feel About This New Development?
Even Porsha’s baby daddy, Dennis McKinley seems O.K. with the news, appearing in pictures with the couple where Porsha is sporting a huge emerald cut diamond engagement ring.

Porsha Williams Is Not Looking back…Only forward
As reported by People, Porsha is not looking back…only forward, stating –
“Our relationship began a month ago — yes we are crazy in love…
“I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most.” – PORSHA WILLIAMS
As for his social media post, he stated –
“I asked her to marry me because we checked ALL of each other’s boxes, and then some,” the entrepreneur wrote on Instagram.
Recognizing how this might look to some, Porsha clarified her feelings with these words –
“Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them.”
“Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled…Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.”
Looks like we have a wedding to plan! Can’t you see little Pilar Jhena as the flower girl already?
Simon shares a daughter with Falynn, her name is Ximena. Additionally, Simon has 4 children with his previous wife.
Porsha Williams was married to football player Kordell Stewart from 2011. That union ended in divorce in 2013. She was twice engaged to her daughter’s dad, Dennis McKinley.
Though things didn’t work out romantically, Porsha and Dennis have managed to forge an amicable relationship for the sake of their daughter.
